Welcome To DEPOTEC

The DEPOTEC project, in line with the objectives of the LIFE+ Environment and Governance, aims to evaluate the life cycle of depolymerisation of EOL tyres and contribute towards industry best practice in addition to developing new markets.EOL tyres which, if disposed of inappropriately, can be expensive and time consuming to recover could otherwise be used to produce highly valuable products such as Recovered Char which is used in the manufacture of plastics, Oil and Gas for use in electricity production and transportation aswell as Steel which is recovered and used in construction and manufacturing.While depolymerisation of EOL tyres is not a new practice it is envisaged that DEPOTEC will examine the economic roadblocks to previous exploitation and evaluate understanding. Areas such as EOL tyre management, depolymerisation process development and design, energy optimization methodologies, planning and construction of the prototype plant will be advanced and recommendations made.
